Vlog #9 – Two Summits

I was hoping for a thunderstorm and some rain. I didn’t time that right, but I did have an awesome run through a beautiful forest. I reached the highest peak in Ventura Country, and I got an extra surprise peak out of the deal! Check it out.

Vlog #8 – Too Many Tarantulas

So this thing is turning into a vlog. I’m trying to post one video per week. It has been fun writing music and learning more about Final Cut Pro.

This week, I head up a trail in Brea, CA. I bet you can’t guess what I saw up there.

Donate to Red Cross for Hurricane Harvey Victims

Lots of things are messed up in this country right now, and there seems to be a lot of division, but now is a time to come together and help people in need. The people of Houston, Texas and surrounding areas need help as they are being hit with historic, catastrophic flooding. It is already bad, but the worst is yet to come as the rain is forecast to continue into next week. Put everything else aside right now, and donate to the Red Cross to help our fellow Americans in need. Don’t wait. They need help. Now. Do it now.

Donate.

Without Moon or Headlamp

This was a late-afternoon run into the dark at Johnson Ranch in San Luis Obispo. I had no headlamp, and there was no moon. It was very dark. But that’s part of the fun. Check it out!

Trump’s Continued Incompetency is Getting MORE Dangerous

This stuff isn’t going away. Trump is deteriorating our international relations, instigating wars and stresses between nations, provoking and condoning violence within our own country, and continuously ignoring common sense politics that have driven this country for close to 250 years.

Now, we have to worry about nuclear war with North Korea. North Korea is run by a horrible little man that has no ethics (like Trump), but provoking him with undiplomatic drivel normally used in a middle school playground is unnecessary and dangerous. Nuclear war is not a way to show power. It is a way to show either desperation (North Korea) or ineptitude (Trump). Nuclear war would kill millions of innocent people. It is only an answer for animals.

We now have to worry about nazis in our own country. Last night’s post emphasized the terrorism that exists within our borders. This segment of society hasn’t been so vocal and brazen in a hundred years. Why are we going backwards?

We now have to worry about critical damage to the sciences. Trump has no education about basic science. He believes the human heart only has a finite number of beats in a lifetime, so exercise is bad. utter nonsense. He is defunding climate science despite the fact that those repercussions are being felt right now, and they will only get worse at a rapid pace. Trump wants science dead despite the fact that science is the only reason he is alive right now.

We have to worry about deteriorating economy. Trump is wrong on almost every economic front. His “America first” mentality is not the way to grow economy. His plan to kick out 2-3 million immigrants does not grow economy. His plan to replace and repeal the ACA will not grow economy. His plan to hinder renewable energy development (aka: science) will not grow the economy. Any one of these things might be fine, but all of them together are a recipe for economic disaster for Americans.

We have to worry about having a liar and a manipulator as our president. This guy is a horrible human being. He advocates sexual assault. He lies constantly despite recorded evidence that he is lying. He promotes and provokes violence, white supremacy, and racism. He uses the office of President as a way to leverage his own businesses. He is too stupid to realize when he is being manipulated. This joker has the nuclear codes. This moron can pardon anyone. This trash can destroy the United States of American. Literally.

Resist.

What is the Alt-Right? This is It.

Watch this video. It is 22 minutes of truth about what we are dealing with in this country. There are parts of our country that are disgusting, despicable. Deplorable. These people claiming to “protect history” are the worst of the worst. We can call them Nazis, white supremacists, alt-right, Mitch McConnell, or Donald Trump, but they are all on the wrong side of history.

I cancelled my membership to the ACLU this week due to their support of free speech at all costs. That is wrong. Somebody died over this version of free speech protected by the ACLU. If free speech is inciting violence against other – any others – it is wrong. This should be self-evident, but apparently too many people in this country can’t think for themselves. Of course, those people are a small minority. They are literally terrorists. But it’s still too many people. Free speech is a right, but there are obvious boundaries. For all the good they do, the ACLU does not know those boundaries. This trash must be marginalized.

Resist.

Clinging to Sleep

Clinging to Sleep – Somewhere in Alaska

I was just perusing some photos from an Alaskan trip, and I was struck with this photo. It’s not perfect, but it’s worth sharing.

Four Weeks of Trump Incompetence

Our president is completely incompetent to lead this country. There is so much evidence of this, but this short CNN video reminds you of only the last four weeks of chaos caused by the orange moron in blunt starkness.

Keep reminding yourself of this fact. Don’t let it become normal. This isn’t normal.
